Good morning and happy new year! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. 🥳
The two cards today show different ways to color the EE53 skinny candles. One of our favorites is a gradient and the other is to add stripes/dots. With both, we start with the lightest color marker and then add the darker color. White paper is dull gloss. The pink striped background paper is from a paper pack. The green striped background we created using the HH28 dots and lines border stamp.
So our travel ran into a little hiccup yesterday!! We started off good and drove 16 miles and needed to get gas…so when we stopped Kevin noticed we had a broken leaf spring on the toy hauler. We spent the next 5 hours looking for a leaf spring and then a mobile tech to put it on and then we could begin our journey again!! groan! the joys of traveling 😜 But we have now arrived in West Springfield and can relax until tomorrow and set up.
Today’s card is a sweet bib card to welcome a baby!
Finally a few baby girls have been born. Sadly one is way down in Texas so I probably won’t see her for awhile and the other is here in MN. So excited! It means I can finally pull out my pink paper. After making the last 3 baby cards blue, it is a good change. I like to use purple and teal if I don’t know whether it is a girl or a boy though and that breaks up the traditional pink and blue, like the elephant card from last Friday. The tag in this card is a punch by EK Success that I ran a copic marker along the edge to add some pink and embellished it with a little heart brad (I love these brads!).
